NCAP Mid-distance Freestyler Jacob Rosner Verbally Commits to Northwestern

Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.

Jacob Rosner, a senior at the Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland, has announced his verbal commitment to Northwestern University’s class of 2020.

“Extremely excited to announce my verbal commitment to continue my academic and swim career at Northwestern University! I would like [to] thank my family, coaches, and friends who have supported and helped me get here. Go Cats!”

Rosner swims under Bruce Gemmell at Nation’s Capital Swim Club. He specializes in mid-distance freestyle and was runner-up in both the 200 free (1:38.70) and 500 free (4:33.75) at 2019 Washington Metro Championships. He also split 21.00 on the end of the Landon 200 free relay and anchored the 400 free relay in 47.18. This summer, Rosner competed at Speedo Junior Nationals, placing 12th in the 400 free with a PB of 3:58.78. He also picked up new LCM best times this summer in the 800 free, 200 back, 100 fly, and 200/400 IM. He wrapped up 2018-19 short-course season with an outstanding meet at 2019 NCSA Spring Championship. He was runner-up in the 500 free and fifth in the 1000 free and finaled in the 200 free, 200 fly and 200 IM. He left the meet with PBs in the 200/500 free, 100/200 fly, and 200 IM.

Rosner would have been Northwestern’s top 500 freestyler last season and would have joined then-sophomore Liam Gately in the B final at B1G Championships. He would have ranked third in the 200 free behind Gately and his classmate Robert Cecil.

AustinPoolBoy was likely commenting on their class this year, as NU was a comment section hit for the 9-12 men’s class.
